Any ball that lands in the area within the foul line
A ball that is between the two foul poles. There are rules that contradict that though.For example -if a player makes contact with the ball before it goes foul it's still considered fair.~*~Jamie*Leigh~*~
A foul ball is a ball that is hit outside of the foul lines on the field. A ball that bounces in fair territory then goes into foul territory before it passes a base is considered a foul ball. A ball that bounces in fair territory and then bounces into foul territory after it passes a base if considered a fair ball.
Errors are only charged when a ball is in fair play.
The Three Witches say, "fair is foul and foul is fair" in the play MacBeth by Shakespeare.
Their victory is fair. The weather is foul.
Foul is fair and fair is foul
"fair is foul and foul is fair"
You can not get a foul but you can hit a foul ball when the ball is hit outside of the lines.
It's as simple as this: what seems fair is actually foul, and what seems foul is actually fair.
In both baseball and softball all lines are considered to be fair territory. If a batted ball hits the line on the fly, but then rolls into foul territory, it is still considered a fair ball. This rule only applies to a ball hit past either the first or third base bag. A ball that hits the line, or inside the line, before reaching the first or third base bag is a foul ball.
